Murphey's Laws of Martial Arts

10 scientific principles that apply to the study of all martial arts:

1. The referee will always be looking the other way when you score.

2. The wimp who made it through the elimination round on luck alone will suddenly turn into Bruce Lee when you're up against him.

3. The day you leave work early to make it to class on time, the sensei will be sick.

4. You will have trouble with the ties on your gi pants when members of the opposite sex are in class.

5. If you have to use your training in self-defense, your attacker's father will be a lawyer.

6. When the sensei uses you during demonstrations it going to be for joint-locking techniques.

7. After years of training without a single injury, you will pull a muscle the night before your black belt exam.

8. After a flawless demonstration, you will trip on your way back to your seat.

9. No matter how many times you take care of it beforehand, you will invariably have to go to the toilet when it's your turn during belt promotion exams.

10. In an otherwise vacant locker room, the only other person will have the locker right next to yours.
